written by edward cline, who is our guest on booktv on c-span2. where did you get the title for this book. >> it came from a meeting that bill clinton had in chappaqua new york, north of york city where he has a home. this is back in august 2001. he invited several gas and it showed that he wanted to challenge the president and she is surprised by all this. and she said though, how can i do this, and the secretary of state. i have the ones with the miniver thursday. what about loyalty? and he said, there is no such word as loyalty in politics. he then went on to say that the people. the aaa credit rating of the united states, the barack obama was, in his words, an amateur. i spoke to people at that meeting. when i heard that, i said, that's the perfect title for this book, "the amateur." >> president clinton has denied publicly that he has used that term. >> i will tell you an interesting story. he has denied it, but hillary has told his friends that she suspected that of all people, chelsea had told me about this. now, that's not true. i've never met chelsea clinton. but apparently she h
. the "new york times" told me today that charles edward durning was born into poverty in 1923 in highland falls, new york on the hudson river. charles was the ninth of ten children, and five of his sisters died of smallpox or scarlet fever in childhood. three of them died within two weeks. and world war ii. he was in the first wave of troops to land on omaha beach on d-day. he was his unit's only survivor of the war. he was stabbed in hand-to-hand combat. he killed the german soldier who was stabbing him. had to kill him with a brick. when charles durning looked at that dead german he had just killed who seemed no more than 15 years old, he held him in his arms and cried. he was awarded three purple hearts and a silver star. "the times" points out that he avoided discussing his combat service until later in life, but it was for that service that in 2008 france awarded him the national order of the legion of honor. i'm one of the lucky writers who got to write for charles durning. it is not a small group. there are probably at least 300 of us, if you include all of the plays and the televi
with edward reilly and joan walker of allstate, and post the economic crisis, we decided to see what the american public's perceptions are as to what was happening in their lives and the economy. part of the notion over the years, it is to give voice to middle class and american public opinion as to what is happening with our economy and their lives. we have conducted literally over 25,000 interviews, the last four years, so there is a repository year of data which is extraordinary, which is available, and i really recommend it to all of you at as a database that gives a pretty good sense of what the public has been thinking and gives a voice to the middle class. the survey we're talking about the day that ed reilly is going to present has a different orientation, more toward what does the public want to see done as opposed to what do they think and how did a few things straight it is their to-do list, not limited to just worrying about the debt and the fiscal cliff and such. our program today, i am welcoming you. joan walker will welcome you as well. ed reilly will give the polling

to the gentlelady from maryland, ms. edwards. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. edwards: thank you, mr. speaker. and i thank the gentleman from connecticut, both for your leadership and i share in your absolute sorrow. and to honor the memory of the 20 children and six educators who lost their lives in this really horrific attack at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and our first responders and all of those both in newtown and across this country who are affected by this tragedy. first as a mother my heart truly aches for the parents who lost their children, young and old. lost their future. but as a member of congress, i also know that we're not doing nearly enough to protect our children and to protect our communities from gun violence. in cities and rural areas, schools, offices and homes, this has happened far too many times in far too many communities all across our country. in my district alone, there have been over 160 incidences of gun violence in -- this year. and 46 people in my

[applause] you have been wondering what i have been doing and i have been wondering what you have been doing. [laughter] >> those who were disappointed by this outcome, the democrats elated by this outcome -- given the conventional wisdom around this campaign, the president's approval ratings that were barely above 50%, often dipping below it, the unemployment around 8%, gdp growth stock of around 2% -- the conventional wisdom was that should -- that this president should not be reelected. as you take a look at what happened two weeks ago, how do you assess this? >> let me just say first that i made a very good living and politics betting against conventional wisdom. it is a general principle of mine that the conventional wisdom is almost always wrong and it was wrong here. it was wrong here because what we often do in political circles and journalism is that we look at what happened in the last election or pas
to me. it's men in power, thinking they can get away with it, bill clinton, john edwards, newt gingrich. one after the other. men in power think they live by different rules, that's why he deserves to be top of the chart. >> let's turn to the royal family. even the royal family couldn't escape the list. >> well, absolutely not. and in this case, though, prince harry, the kid's had trouble after trouble. if you invite a bunch of people to your room, get drunk and play strip poker, allow them to take pictures, you're going to be in the press. you're going to be in the tabloid. he's a horrible prince harry in that regard. the duchess unfortunately for her, had some expectations of privacy, she was alone on a french villa. they used long lenses to take pictures of her. that's why he deserves to be in the media, she doesn't. >> is it a double standard, because he's a guy. everyone said, you know what, they kind of brushed it off a little bit. if a woman, a female member of the royal family had taken pictures like prince harry, it would be quite a different story. >> i think it would be, but

from "60 minutes" on the project along with actors matt damon don cheadle and edward norton. it will be on tv next year. >> bill: al gore involved with this? >> i do not believe so. >> he should be. >> bill: he should be. >> president obama welcomed members of congress to the white house for a christmas party last night. interesting to note this is the fourth straight year where they've taken time out for holiday cheer while being on a strict deadline on huge legislation. the fiscal cliff likely wade for awkward conversations around the eggnog last night. >> bill: i'm sure when john boehner had his picture taken with the president. >> oh, yeah. >> bill: how are we doing here john? >> rick santorum has a new job. the former senator and failed presidential candidate will write a weekly column for the conservative world net daily site. ceo joseph made the announcement yesterday saying santorum will continue to go to bat for conservatives who feel their voices aren't being heard. >> bill: i cannot criticize r
the abdication of edward the viii, today it was about the end of a love affair. it was the stuff of fairy tales. the engagement of a shy young woman to a prince and future king. it was the wedding the world watched. princess was hailed as the jewel in the crown. but, there were rumors of trouble even as they posed as the happy family. and this year, many published reports that both had other close relationships. so today's words in parliament were not a surprise. >> it is announced from buckingham palace that with regret, the prince and princess of wales have decided to separate. their royal highnesss have no plans to divorce and their constitutional positions are unaffected. >> diana's oldest son, william, has been in the headlines a lot recently since getting married now as an expectant father. prince william attended a gala fundraiser last night without his wife, kate, who is still at home resting. he canceled an event for tonight to stay home with the duchess of cambridge whose acute morning sickness put her in the hospital last week. this week we are expecting a complete medical explanatio
